What's happening in the North Pacific Ocean?

In the last three years, we've had El Niño, "The Blob," and when they merged, “El Blobiño!”  Those conditions led to the Wreck of the Cassin's Auklet, the Domoic Acid outbreak that wiped out the Dungeness Crab season, the collapse of the Kelp forests, and more.  On The Ecology Hour, we talk with Dr. William Sydeman of The Farallon Institute and get an update on what has happened and what we can expect going forward. 

This show aired on Tuesday August 8, and is available for streaming or download from the KZYX Jukebox.
